Bio

Bryan Baker, a guitarist, singer, and songwriter who has, since the age of 13, amazed, awed, inspired and overwhelmed audiences, editors, reviewers and fans worldwide. Bryan's mastery of the instrument, his evolved, innovative and supremely unique style of playing, and if fan base, tour dates and current book sales are any indication of this artist's credibility, his reach and impact within the music industry will only increase exponentially with every performance and music project.

From the soulful, bluesy vibe of his work, his hard, intense, guitar based rock style, his mastery of improvisational jazz to Bryan's fully computer driven electronica, there simply isn't a musician, let alone a musician who has been composing, arranging and performing with this range and expanse of musical experience as Bryan Baker.
